The news Hands-Free Law went into place on August 1st, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways drivers can distract themselves.
On Tuesday, July 30th, St. Cloud Deputies responded to a three car crash on County Road 75 and County Road 3 just west of St. Joseph. The driver of a Chevy Equinox rear-ended a Nissan Rogue at a red-light, and debris blocked a third car from driving. Both the Equinox and Rogue were totaled in the accident and were towed from the scene.
The driver of the Equinox admitted to putting on her makeup just prior to the crash. The City of St. Cloud says that any type of distracted driving, whether it’s a phone or not, can lead to accidents.
